Ashley Collins Naples Daily News Published 2:32 p.m. UTC Aug 3, 2018 Teresa Hoover keeps busy in the kitchen, adding the final touches to a pink bone-shaped birthday cake inside her Naples bakery. Her final creation looks like a treat for an animal-loving child, which is partly true — if your child has four legs and gives you slobbery kisses when you walk through the door. On a recent Wednesday, Hoover baked the dog-friendly cake using chickpea flour, banana and peanut butter.

I’d just finished snowshoeing along the Presumpscot River and was perched at the seafood counter at Scales, an upscale restaurant on a fishing wharf in the Old Port section of Portland, Maine.
